Ok metro days to dose every 2 days. 

I'll make a concentrated solution of FS as I did before. Can I dose this every 2 days?

How long do you want me to treat for? At least 2 weeks?

Basically 1g treats 250litres, dosed once per week.

When we used it before I made a concentrated solution & dosed every day following 100% WC. Apparently prazi loses potency after about 4 days?

However, the pack does say not to use at the same time as any other treatment. The only other thing we used before at the same time was salt at 0.3%

OK dose like it says and the same for the Metro hun. 

"If in a hospital tank without a cycled filter, she will have to use water changes regularly and dose the new water with metro and fluke solve."

So you're happy for me to ignore packet & use both at the same time yes? And just to be clear, we're taking about Metroplex right?

Am I using salt as well?

Does 100% WC every 2 days constitute as regular enough?

If so, I'll make a concentrated solution of FS as before. For a weeks supply of dosing every 2 days for a 40 litre container that'll be;

40litres x 4WC = 160 litres of water for the week

1g of FS does 250 litres, so 1 / 250 = 0.004g per litre, multiply by 160 litres for 0.64g of FS
 
I'll mix this into 1 litre of water which is 250ml dose per WC (4 per week)

I take it I'm dosing for minimum of 2 weeks?

Hi Koko - doing ok I guess. The redness on his wen & belly have cleared, but his tail is showing no signs of improvement whatsoever. There's a pale reddish patch on his right just below his dorsal that kinda looks like a graze & another on his left midway up his body just behind his gill plate.

Tomorrow will be the 4th dose of FS & metroplex. Round 2 starts on Monday. 

FYI - I now have Acriflavine in the cupboard.

Taken just now...

Redness is back to belly (poor photo I'm afraid, he was fed up of me handling him), I think I see the start of redness to wen too.

Just had 4th & final dose for round 1 of FS/metroplex.

Also have Acriflavine to hand. Bought it after remembering Sharon mentioning it ages ago. Not sure if it's if any use here, but I have it if needs be. 

Have ordered more Metro & Kana as I'm on my last tubes of both (used Kana on Dad at one point as well as Winston). Gonna be 2-3 weeks before I see them, but hopefully I have enough of everything in the cupboard for what you suggest.

Do you want me to continue the FS & metro for now? The 1st dose of round 2 starts tonight.

I seem to have subjected him to quite a lot of meds over the last few months - I'm not doing more harm than good am I? I'm worried about his kidneys specifically, as I know you mentioned this before.

p.s. He's now been in QT almost exclusively since November!! :thud

It doesn't seem to be helping if the Red is still there.... Hummm.....

We have been giving him so many Meds. I would like to... If he can do it. Salt dips with Clean water... Then I would like you to put Silver in the Qt tank after all the meds are out.... What size is the QT tank hun? and what is your Silver?

He's on 100% WC tonight, so all meds will be removed.

No probs on salt dips. Last time I did them he could only cope with 2% for the full 5 minutes. 3% was a BIG no no. Cam I start them tonight or would tomorrow be better?

Colloidal silver is 250ppm.

Actually, it'll have to be tomorrow anyway - need to get some filtered water ready for it. I forgot about that small detail! Doh! 

QT is 40 litres.

How often for the salt dips & how many times? Every other day? Always at 0.1% (not 1.0%)?
